Looking back my hate for the competition style learning was a fear that my stellar performance would be no longer apart of my identify. From a young child’s perspective, the thought of my peers knowing that I performed below expectation because my name did not make the board that day became intimidating, and eventually not something I wanted to be a part of. If I could go back to this classroom today with the same teacher I would encourage her to let each student explore themselves as learners and not to interact with competition as each person learns at a different pace. For some this style of learning could cause retraction and not

Since Aristophanes’ comedies, satire has been aiming at criticizing the injustices of the authorities as well as the moral wrongness of society. By the wise use of wit and humour, satire castigat ridendo mores, a Latin phrase coined by the 17th century French scholar Jean de Santeul. The meaning of the sentence is that one can change customs of society s/he is living in by laughing at them. In other words, the best way of changing things is to point out their absurdity and satirise them.
The large-scale issue of poverty is dated all the way back to the 18th Century and it continues today. To raise awareness about this issue, two very brilliant writers, Jonathan Swift and Fred Grimm used different forms of satire to get their points across. Jonathan Swift is an 18th Century writer, who used Juvenalian satire in his work “A Modest Proposal” to inform the English about the raising number of those in poverty in Ireland. Juvenalian satire is often a bitter, or angry form of satire that criticizes a corruption. Fred Grimm started writing for the Miami Herald in the 20th Century, he used Horatian satire in his column “State budget solution: Ban the kids”, to bring light to the budget that the Governor Rick Scott sent to the
To meet her expectations, I gave away my naiveté to sophistication and to be duplicity and pretending. I had to make up things to say. For instance, I criticized my mother for being too fond of nice-looking clothing and a capitalist way of living, and I condemned my father for having worked for the National Party. Neither of these represented my real thoughts. Racking my brain, I criticized myself for my “arrogance,” and allowing my parents to pamper me.
The type of satire used in this novel is the comical satire, which means that humor is a strong ingredient in the efforts of the author to criticize the elements he dislikes. The author achieves this by making the audience laugh at the individual, thereby exposing the flaws. The novel centers on a combat pilot, Yossarian, who tries his best to leave the battle field and return home as fighting rages in World War II. He gives different types of excuses, but everything fails because of the Catch – 22 rule, which states that pilots must request to be grounded only if they are insane, and one needs to be sane to ask for this

Many audiences of stand up comedy enjoy hearing their favorite comedian entertain them. But what would one think when a comedian cracks a joke about a sensitive topic, for example, a tragedy that affected hundreds of people. Some may argue that, comedians are not supposed to overstep the boundary of controversial jokes.

Comedians are not compelled to restrain from controversial topics due to the topic not being sugar-coated, the higher level of contemplation that the joke can reach, and the job of the comedian—to make the current issue manageable.
